Osteopathy For Disc Herniation

Herniated Discs overview:

The human body is centered around a prolonged structure made of several bone formations (vertebrae) and discs composed of fibrous bands and a gel-filled interior (intervertebral discs) called the spinal column.

Although made of bone, this mechanism supporting both structures, bones and discs, allows the spinal column to retain a certain range of flexibility. This allows humans to bend their bodies while protecting themselves from external trauma and bone friction.

Meanwhile, the intervertebral discs act like a jelly donut, with a softer center (called the nucleus) encased within a tougher exterior (called the annulus).

spinal disc herniation occurs when there is a tear in the annulus, resulting in the protrusion of the gel-filled interior. The pain is either the result of a tear in the annular region or a disc pressing on the spinal nerves that run alongside the spinal column.

The symptoms of a herniated disc can be sometimes minor and easy to ignore. However, sometimes they become severe and incapacitating especially if the disc starts pressing on the spinal nerves.

A herniated disc can affect various regions of the spinal column and is either cervical, thoracic, lumbar, or intradural. Typically, a lumbar herniation affects the buttocks, calves, and legs, while cervical herniation affects the arms. People may have different symptoms and prognosis depending on what vertebrae are affected.
